Management Strategy Consultant
I returned home to the Bay Area in 2010, having had recently completed a fellowship with UNESCO in Paris, France. With the aim to leverage that experience, I joined forces with the Global Heritage Fund, whose mission is to protect, preserve and sustain the most significant and endangered cultural heritage sites in the global south.
I conducted a comprehensive study of the finance mechanisms available for heritage preservation initiatives in six of the world’s most impoverished countries. Using a combination of research methods, I analyzed the 500 most active funding bodies in this field, including: governments, bi- and multilateral agencies, funds-in-trust, private foundations, and individuals. I analyzed and mapped current initiatives by size and type, and generated strategic recommendations on how the Fund could better design and align its work with potential partner institutions.
